Thrifty Thursday – Free Lookup – One Dorman Family of Connecticut

This entry was posted by Jim Sanders on Thursday, 30 August, 2012 at

For those of you who may have Dorman, Bertrand, Laurie and/or Banks ancestors from Connecticut, there is a little known published book which might be helpful in your research. The book is called “One Dorman family of Connecticut” and was written and published by Lillian R. Malone & Dorothy M. Stroble in 1991. The book contains the ancestry of the authors. Major lines of the authors include Bertrand, Laurie and Banks.

A copy of this book was donated to the Connecticut State Library and is available in the Genealogy Room there. I also have a copy of the book and am willing to do a lookup for my readers. If you are interested in having me lookup an ancestor in the book, please leave a reply to this blog post with names, dates and any other information which you think would be helpful in identifying the individual you’re looking for.

    Jim, do you have anyone in that book who was from Pennsylvania? I’m presuming that originally they came from Pennsylvania and then relocated to Connecticut or am I wrong?

    God bless,

      The Dormans in the book came from New Haven, CT. Edmund Dorman was born in about 1636 and died on 1-May-1711 in New Haven. He married Hannah Hull. They had 7 children (Samuel, John, Joseph, Samuel, Benjamin. Hannah and Mary). Skimming through the Dormans, I don’t see any from Pennsylvania.

      Regards, Jim
